I was going to post about my birthday that was yesterday. Now, all I'm going to mention about my birthday is that I did have a piece of cake. It was my birthday after all. Right now all I can think about is how bad my back hurts today. Days like today make it difficult for me to see a hopeful future when it comes to my physical well-being. I have noticed that I've been able to increase my exercise levels from just a few weeks ago, but I don't feel my back getting any better. As a matter of fact, it almost feels worst some days. Today I just want to curl up on my couch and cry. It's mostly the right side. Over a year and a half ago I had an MRI of my back. It showed that not only do I have arthritis in my back, but I also have a bulging disc. I'm thinking that that has gotten worst in the last year and a half. I should have decided to change my health years ago. Oh well, hindsight is always 20/20. I'm going to have to see a chiropractor soon. For now, I'm going to take some anti-inflammatories and lay on a heat pad, .
